Hill Of Dreams was placed here a fortnight ago and can figure again along with Taro Tywod and Sweet Liberta but Poetry Writer's best recent efforts have been on the Turf. Miss Ella Jade has place claims and Another Squeeze has scope for improvement but TYRUR TED finished a close-up fifth at Kempton on his first start for local trainer Frank Sheridan. He was returning from over two years off the track on that occasion and should be sharper today.
